Psalm 25
King James BibleInternational Standard Version
1A Psalm of David. Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.1I will lift up my soul to you, LORD.
2O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.2I trust in you, my God, do not let me be ashamed; do not let my enemies triumph over me.
3Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.3Indeed, no one who waits on you will be ashamed, but those who offend for no reason will be put to shame.
4Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.4Cause me to understand your ways, LORD; teach me your paths.
5Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.5Guide me in your truth and teach me; for you are the God who delivers me. All day long I have waited for you.
6Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.6Remember, LORD, your tender mercies and your gracious love; indeed, they are eternal!
7Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.7Do not remember my youthful sins and transgressions; but remember me in light of your gracious love, in light of your goodness, LORD.
8Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.8The LORD is good and just; therefore he will teach sinners concerning the way.
9The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.9He will guide the humble to justice; he will teach the humble his way.
10All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.10All the paths of the LORD lead to gracious love and truth for those who keep his covenant and his decrees.
11For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.11For the sake of your name, LORD, forgive my sin, for it is great.
12What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.12Who is the man who fears the LORD? God will teach him the path he should choose.
13His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.13He will experience good things; his descendants will inherit the earth.
14The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.14The intimate counsel of the LORD is for those who fear him so they may know his covenant.
15Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.15My eyes look to the LORD continuously, because he's the one who releases my feet from the trap.
16Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.16Turn toward me and have mercy on me, for I am lonely and oppressed.
17The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.17The troubles of my heart have increased; bring me out of my distress!
18Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.18Look upon my distress and affliction; forgive all my sins.
19Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.19Look how many enemies I have gained! They hate me with a vicious hatred.
20O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.20Preserve my life and deliver me; do not let me be ashamed, because I take refuge in you.
21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.21Integrity and justice will preserve me, because I wait on you.
22Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.22Redeem Israel, God, from all its troubles.
